Fue FightersFue Fighters

plus The Fighting 69th

Fue Fighters - Scotland's Foo Fighters Tribute first came about in a small kitchen in Hamilton in 2014, after Mark replied to Gordon's online ad to see if anyone was interested in starting a Foo's trib. After a splendid acoustic rendition of Big Me, it was quickly decided that they should push on with plans to recruit new members, while practising in each others houses.

Scott quickly came on board as drummer, after which Mark and Gordon quickly decided that new amps would have to be bought in order to be heard!

After our original bassist Paul decided to leave with our thanks after our early gigs, Stewart came on board, and the he quickly settled in, bringing with him his incredible enthusiasm and stage presence.

The rest, as they say, is history. The band regularly play in Scotland's top pubs and clubs dedicated to playing live music, constantly striving to hone in on the brilliant sound of Foo Fighters. Rock on!!

Gordon, from Hamilton, lead guitar and vocals. He has done tribute work in the Tenerife and Canaries circuit including Status Quo, Green Day, Floyd and and also rock/pop covers band working the holiday resorts. Since return to Scotland had also been a guitarist and singer in 12 Gold Bars (Quo).

Mark, from Falkirk, rhythm guitar and vocals. Has rehearsed in a few covers and original bands but never actually made it onto stage proper, so this the first band he has played on stage with.

Stewart, from Clydebank, bass guitar, is the band's scholar. Studied music at James Watt
and has been playing 15 years played in a Fleetwood Mac and AC/DC tribute. He also played in an original band and recorded a couple of singles.

Scotty, also from Clydebank, drums. Scotty has been drumming 25 years in many bands in Scotland over the years. The past 12 years mostly in the covers and tribute scene and is a very busy "dep" drummer in the Scottish rock covers scene.

Maiden Scotland

Scream for Me Dumfries!!

Maiden Scotland are one of the best and most established tributes to rock legends Iron Maiden. Formed in 2003, Maiden Scotland have been touring all over the UK and Ireland ever since. Featuring 5 experienced musicians, the band is fronted by vocal powerhouse Martin Jakubski. Martin has the exceptional power and range needed to accurately deliver the air raid siren vocals of Bruce Dickinson. Martin's singing credentials were proven when he was chosen by original Marillion guitar Steve Rothery to sing in his solo band. On the lead twin guitar are the brothers grimm, Mark and Stuart Mitchell, both have performed on tour with original Iron Maiden singer Paul Dianno and know exactly how a Maiden tribute should sound! Completing the line up on bass is the Glasgow legend that is Allen Bell as wee 'arry! On drums we have the amazing Mark Bray who also features in top Rush tribute Moving Pictures, both top class musicians.

Maiden Scotland cover all era of Iron Maiden. Although the focus is mainly on the classic Eighties era. You will hear all the classic hits like Run to the Hills, Wasted Years and Can I Play with Madness but also epic album tracks like Fear of the Dark and Phantom of the Opera. Maiden Scotland are not a cabaret tribute band and do not wear wigs, preferring to focus on putting on a full blown rock gig with 110% commitment. A ferocious live band in their own right, Maiden Scotland's gonna get ya!
